Cajamarca Carnival is a party like no other, where all the people dance, sing and drink to the beat of Cajamarca couplets; all involved: children, youth and adults (as the song says "God made for everyone, for the rich and the poor"). It starts from the first week of January and lasts until March. There is a major week starting with the entrance nonCarnavalón and ends with the burial of it. Then in March or cortamontes continue unshas consisting of traditional people dance around a decorated tree with fruits and gifts, while attempts are made to bring it down with an ax.
